SP Energy Networks own and operate the electricity transmission and distribution network in Central & Southern Scotland, Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and North Shropshire.

About SP Energy Networks

To meet our evolving customer needs, we are developing smarter, more flexible network solutions to help mitigate the need for traditional reinforcement and reduce costs for our customers.

We recognise that resources connected to our networks could provide services to assist in key areas that have specific challenges during periods of network constraint.

So we are exploring markets for flexibility with new and existing customers who are able and willing to control how much they generate or who can control their demand.


Flexibility Services

We will look to procure Flexibility Services through competitive tenders where possible.

Responses from Flexibility providers will be used to:

  • Identify the availability of flexibility resources in specific areas where flexibility could benefit the network
  • Understand the capabilities and restrictions of these resources
  • Evaluate the viability of using flexibility to meet network requirements.
